There are thousands of these two wheelers buzzing around Thailand, and it's common for them to be overloaded with goods, going the wrong direction or pulling risky moves. Keep a lookout!
Tailgating and cutting other drivers off is common, and signalling is unlikely. Thai drivers also fancy nudging their way into dense traffic, so drive defensively.
Unlike in Western countries, marked pedestrian crossings do not mean cars are to yield for pedestrians. Rather, it’s the opposite, as stopping for walkers disrupts the flow of traffic.
Thailand travel tips
There are so many, if you try to see them all, you’ll burn yourself out! Visiting is usually free. You must remove your shoes and hats before entering, avoid getting in the way of locals worshipping, and dress modestly.
Rainy season occurs throughout most of Thailand from June to October. It rains almost everyday during these months and storms can be very intense. Flooding is also common and can cause issues driving.
From night bazaars to floating markets, there are plenty of places to shop, but remember to haggle! You can usually talk your price down by at least a third.
Return a ‘wai’
Wai is a greeting where you bow your head while keeping your hands in a praying gesture. It is polite to smile and return this gesture to anyone welcoming you this manner.

The Thailand experience
Khao Sok – One of the world’s oldest rainforests, this park is home to bears, gibbons and marbled cats, as well as the beautiful Cheow Larn Lake. The best time to visit is during dry season, between December and April.
Khao Yai National Park – Thailand’s oldest national park, its lush landscape is packed with wildlife. While you cannot feed or wash elephants here, you can observe them in their natural environment. You also have the chance to spot exotic birds and monkeys.
Koh Tao – This island is one big amazing beach. It’s one of the top places to cast off from for a diving or snorkeling adventure and a superb hangout for catching some rays.
Ko Samet – Tour groups, solo backpackers and local Bangkokians all flock to the aquamarine waters here. If you’re looking for a party, head to the northern beaches, if you prefer something more secluded the southern beaches will be sure to please. Hat Sai Kaew – Diamond Beach – is a popular stretch of luxury sand.
Wiang Kum Kam – The former capital of Lanna kingdom, this archaeological site dates back to the 13th century. Its landmark monuments include a powerful Buddhist chedi and historic inscribed stone slabs.
Wat Rong Khun – Also known as the White Temple, this Buddhist temple is an intricate piece of architecture. The famous structure is an unconventional yet eye-catching design that will inspire awe, even for those who are ‘templed out’.
